I love open-ended questions for leads. As in, what do you get when you cross Heavy Metal with Cumbia music? Glad you asked, because on this week’s World Music Show (10/14) you’ll get the answer.
And that answer will come from my interview with the leader of the Oakland, Ca based band called La Misa Negra (who’s name is a reference to a Heavy Metal group—to find out which one, you’ll have to tune in).
Let’s face it—it’s been a rough week. No getting around it. So hopefully on this week’s World Music Show (10/7) the musical choices will help our tired souls and perhaps lift us up a bit.
In hour one, we’re going to take the mellow/string driven road by hearing new music from the new collaboration featuring Mali’s Trio Da Kali and the long running Kronos Quartet. Their new CD, called “Ladilikan” is like a cross-cultural fertilization, in which both parties bring their A game to the turntable.
